If you’ve lived even a few years on this earth, then you are well aware of how interesting, curious and unexpectedly beautiful life is. You know that the earth offers mysterious wonders, and you might’ve even learned that life is short. And we only get one.
That being said, it’s easy for us to become slaves to a routine that offers us no happiness or satisfaction. So you find that you’re bored and maybe even feeling a little hopeless.
I’m going to tell you right now that it isn’t your life you’ve gotten bored with, you’ve just become boring. Miracles are constantly happening around you that you’ve become accustomed to overlooking, because of your self-absorption in your own life and mundane tasks. You’ve stopped finding joy, comfort, and excitement in the little things.
Every time you go out and do a task, there are incredibly exciting and unique things happening around you, all you need to do is become conscious of them!
When you go to the grocery store, be more vigilant. Perhaps you’ll see someone buying a first birthday cake for their child, or perhaps you’ll see an elderly person picking out flowers for their loved one, just because they feel like it.
You’ve become dull because you’ve chosen to see dullness, and you’ve settled for meaningless surface interactions with people.
Open yourself up to the possibility that even completing a mundane task could provide you with some unique enjoyment. You can find enjoyment in anything if you seek to learn something and have fun.
Acknowledge enjoyment and be vigilant of the happiness and pleasure you’re getting from even the littlest things. It’s not about stepping way out of bounds to find adventures and enjoyment, it’s about extracting the miracles and enjoyment out of every little thing you do.
